You can find more on the link below. Basically, you can find any type of vegetable this way. The easiest is to search for the GENUS or SPECIES of the vegetable you are trying to find (e.g. try "carrots genus and species" in google for example) and then look for these in the data base (in the example, you would look up Genus: Dacus Species: carota in the database. "Dacus" (genus) and "Carota" (species) was information returned by google).
